Robert,

I think the hairpin effect can be overcome by keeping the sequence sorted in
order of the moment the Point was recorded. loadstone does not track the
time but perhaps the breadcrumb idea would justify adding this item to the
saved point data. 


All the best,

Hi rob!
I think a route saving option should be the next goal for Loadstone. I'm not
sure how realistic route planning is, given the hairpin curve effect, but it
would be a big step forward if it were possible to save a route which could
then be reloaded. I haven't tried the breadcrumb generator yet, simply
because I did not understand your initial email.
You said it converts an nmea.log file to a timed database. I wasn't sure
what that means. It sounded as if some geekish effort was involved in using
it and I'd rather have it simple.

Cheers,
Robbie Sandberg

Hi all,

Thanks for your feedback on the breadcrumb generator and the routeplanner
and special thanks to those who provided the translations. Both tools are
starting points to come to some kind of route generation in Loadstone GPS. 
The tools are not ideal and the functionality should be inside the Loadstone
program but we published them to arouse your immagination and get the
discussion going. We also would like to hear the opinion of the 'silent
majority' on this topic. Do you see a need for a routeplanner/track recorder
and what do you expect from such functionality? Let us know and

maybe the next version of Loadstone GPS has even more to offer!

Your Loadstone team
